Albion High School is once again honored to be a recipient in the Exxon Mobil Educational Alliance program. The school received $500 from the company while the Crosby-Reid Petroleum Company matched the $500 award and presented the check to Principal Jennifer Ashbery and Superintendent of Schools Mickey Edwards this week.
The Exxon Mobil Educational Alliance funds math and science programs across the nation to promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to schools in need.
In the past, money given through the program has been used towards Python technologies for classes working on coding and robotics.
“We are so appreciative,” said Ashbery. “Every year it is a great surprise. Those funds are put to use to promote STEM in the classroom. It is very exciting.”
